Rounders Drill Demonstration

Description

Split your players into two teams. The fielding side will need a bowler, a back stop and a player on first base. The rest of the fielders can stand where they like.

This game start with a bowl to the hands of the first batting player. The batting player should stand with open hands and catch the ball before throwing it into the fielding area.

After throwing the ball out the batting player runs around as many bases as they can.

Rules:

Players score a point for their team for every complete run they make. Players can be caught or run out in the normal manner.

Each player has two goes each before the teams swap around.

Coaching points

Look for the batting (throwing) players to put power in their throws, throwing accurately into space.

The fielding team will also need to focus on their throwing and catching if they want to try and stop the other team from getting too many rounders!

You can play this game with either under arm or over arm throwing.

The choice is yours!
